Only public groups are listed in the dropdown for privacy reasons.
Is your faculty member only a member of private and hidden groups? If not, let me know and I'll look into the problem.
If we want all groups to be shown regardless of privacy status, perhaps we can add a disclaimer in the widget options area to let the user know if the selected group is private.

Sorry for the delay. The site is public but the group connected to it is private so yes, I believe this was the issue.
So I guess you cannot use the bbpress events plugin with a private group (since that relies on the bb group settings)? Makes sense.
Thanks for circling back.
